    are you an LPN or an RN, I grew up in knoxvill, and will hopefully be moving back, and will be needing a job. whats LTC pay like? which ones are a must not work at?

    Your pay really goes by what department you work at in a hospital and what position.In a LTC or ALF, It was about 11-13 per hour for me and when I went to work in a hospital in the PCU (Patient Care Unit),I was doing about 11 something an hour. That department was more like a rehab unit for a nursing home and I hated it. If they were that bad off, they ne4eded to be in a nursing home in order to make room for patients that REALLY neededc those beds instead.

    I'm an RN and work on a med/surg floor in Knoxville. I understand from other nurses that LTC is less stressful than hospital nursing. By the way, welcome to Knoxville in any capacity!

    Hey guys! I am in Knoxville, new to the area since 10/04. I work at Select Specialty Hospital. What LTC are you at? I like it here, but I miss my beach and the heat. What is neat about this town is how wound up everyone gets about UT, especially the football. I am a Florida State Seminole fan, but I hear as long as I am a Gator Hater I am safe. I must say the nicest people I have ever been in contact with live here! What Southern hospitality really is!
